The End of Summer at Fort Lancaster

By Cheryl Dowell, Fort Lancaster Site Staff

At Fort Lancaster State Historic Site, young visitors enjoyed the last week of summer vacation by exploring the site’s ruins and learning about early Texas history. On August 14, it was a day of fun (for the staff, too!) as the kids tried on period uniforms and laundress apparel, and posed for pictures. Perhaps one day they will bring their own kids back to Fort Lancaster to preserve and learn about Texas history as well.
